Chips for Supper

Avoiding the greatest thing on earth — chips for supper


Friday Fill-Ins (September 1)

Every Friday, I’ll be participating in Friday Fill-Ins.

1. I am an INTP (well, between INTP and INTJ). So much so that one test gave me 100% I and T and 75% N. It explains a lot. Take the test yourself. What personality type are you?
2. It seems as though my INTP-ness makes me sarcastic. Who knew?
3. Laughing babies make me laugh.
4. Did you know there was a fire near my work this morning?
5. I looked more closely and I saw something that caught my eye.
6. I’m so glad that I live away from my family.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to 3 hours of calculus, tomorrow my plans include working… on Saturday, and Sunday, I want to organize my purse!

Friday Fill-Ins (July 8)

Every Friday, I’ll be participating in Friday Fill-Ins.

1. I am from calculators, from Tim Horton’s and hockey.

2. I am from the West Coast… fresh air, gorgeous landscape, and a place that can have all of the different kinds of weather on the same day.

3. I am from the tulips, the Dutch flower with its long, strong, straight stem.

4. I am from dollar store Christmas gifts and living cheaply, from Evert and Ellen, and Case and Maria.

5. I am from the world of large families and not a quarrel in sight.

6. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to watching a(nother) lacrosse game, tomorrow my plans include nothing — DAY OFF! and Sunday, I want to get S7 to cut my hair!

Happy Father’s Day

Do you remember Mother’s Day? It was only a little over a month ago.  If you read my blog then you would know about the poem that my brother B6 wrote for Mother’s Day.

Well… now there is a sequel.

Living with 2 sisters, Aunt and Elcnu *
you realized that they were quite a BORE-ah.
You wanted a family to call your own,
as well as a house and working throne.
You wanted a wife so you searched and searched
and finally met her through the church.
After months of dating you popped the question,
got married and started the love session.
Kids 1 through 5 turned up girls
you could not wait for a son to unfurl.
A son is born; you’re not alone
you told grandmother she hung up the phone.
So glad you are to have a son by your side,
you shed a tear, might even cried.
You told your son he would be great,
your wife responded “honey I’m late.”
The last child was born a daughter no less
who kicks her leg and screams out YES!!!
Throughout 10 years, 7 children you loined
I bet you had a lot of ice on your groin.
2 vs 7 hardly seems fair,
unless you’re counting quantity of hair.
The men take that with the greatest of ease
though you said “B6 stop making these cards would you please!”

*Names change to hide identity.  “Uncle” is spelled backwards because we sometimes refer to that uncle with his own named backwards (not in his presence though) and then it rhymes with BORE-ah.  And when his name is spelled backwards, it is very similar to a female name so that’s why it’s “two sisters.”

Happy Mother’s Day

My family is a little weird.  Check out this picture that we took a couple of years ago. From left to right is B6, Me, Japanese sister, S7, S5, S2, Dad and Mom.  I don’t know why S3 wasn’t there, but S4 was in New Zealand at the time.

When the picture was taken, B6 was actually wearing black shorts. But they looked so much like the censorship box that one of my sisters decided to actually put a box over him.

Doesn’t B6 looks weird awesome?

He’s so awesome that he wrote a poem for mom, just for Mother’s Day.

Dreaming about being a mother since you were a little girl,
you met Evert and he took you out for a whirl.
You got hitched and started talking about kids,
while Evert took you out for some squids.
After dinner you both went home and broke out the whiskey.
You said “It’s not good for the body. Besides I’m already FRISKY!!”
Sometime went by with lots of lovin.
He knocked you up, a bun in the oven.
You were so excited though only wanted one,
but Evert said “Look baby, I ain’t done!!”
You screamed in pain as you popped out 7, (let’s face; it that hurt)
but what you got was a little piece of heaven!!

Mom was laughing in tears while reading this out loud!

Did you do anything for your moms that tops what B6 did?
